Main Question or Discussion Point
Would it begin to spiral into the sun or would it slip into a new orbit? Don't most meteorite impacts occur due to the Earth sweeping into the meteor like a car hitting bugs? Wouldn't each and every impact slow the Earth down a tiny bit while also adding to the mass of the planet? I understand that the effect would be minimal(like a bug hitting my windshield) but wouldn't the accumulation of these tiny blows and additions of mass have an effect over millions of years?
